This place is the cat's meow as far as I'm concerned. We ate here 4 of 4 days during spring break skiing, so granted it was super warm and sunny out; perfect patio weather. The fresh grilled burgers/salmon, delicious saurkraut, huge mound of fries, juicy oranges, homemade rice krispy treats, and ice cold drinks totally hit the spot for this...

Great location to view skiers on the mountain while eating. Decent hamburgers and hotdogs because you're able to dress them yourself with plenty of condiments. Caution! Cash only!! Their ATM machine has been broken for months too and they frown on any vouchers that come from the downstairs hotel. I'm sure as a merchant they love not having to deal...

On a sunny day, the sun deck restaurant of the Hotel St. Bernard simply cannot be beat! We had lunch there every day for a week. You can ski right to it - it is located at the base ski lift. The food is excellent and inexpensive (the Hawaiian chicken with grilled pineapple was my favorite but the St. Bernard...

If you're skiing in the Taos Ski valley, St. B's deck is the place to hit for breakfast / lunch. It's a great spot, with decent food and gets lots of sun. It's easily the best option in the valley. (So much more potential though - it leaves you a bit underwhelmed. The burgers are average and it isn't really...

My son and I were in Taos over Christmas. He skies; I do not. But I am easily entertained. I suggested that he ski on Christmas Day, since most of Taos would be shut down for the holiday. While he skied, I enjoyed a couple of hot drinks at the bar. He joined me at lunch, and we split a...

We didn't stay at the hotel, but we have had lunch at the St. Bernard for years by now. I will say that the portobello burger (buy it on the outside deck) is the best burger I have ever had! More importantly, the service is amazing, and it's all due to Jean Mayer. Jean is an amazing person. He is...

The St. Bernard isn't for everyone, and it isn't intended to be. It has the rare spirit and soul of those few places in the world imbued with everything their creators intended, not less, not more. If yours is a world of anonymous amenities, or spare spaces and polished voids, the St. B won't suit you. If you seek a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Jean Mayer arrived in Taos Ski Valley over fifty years ago with a passion for skiing and a dream to create a sanctuary for like-minded ski lovers. With his family, he began building the hotel in 1960. Its sturdy log construction mirrors European Alpine traditions and is located right at the base of Al's Run and the main chairlift. Today it is the only hotel in Taos Ski Valley still offering the traditional, all-inclusive Ski Week – a full week of immersion into the passion of skiing with every need supplied by a well-trained staff of skiing professionals. At the Hotel St. Bernard we continually evolve while keeping an eye on the past. The St. Bernard has stood the test of time since 1960, nestled on the ski slopes it is a perennial favorite. We maintain an historic appeal but we constantly seek improvement to offer a distinctive flair to our guests. The hotel has 28 lodge-style rooms, a beautiful communal dining room with a superbly stocked bar, a spa and work out room, and ski storage lockers. Enjoy lunch outside on the deck - location, location, location! The deck is located on the ski slope! Enjoy a taste of New Mexico with our famous green-chile cheeseburger, other lunchtime treats, drinks and more! The Hotel St. Bernard Ski Week includes 7 nights in hotel room (double occupancy), 6 morning ski lessons, 6 days lift tickets, three meals a day in the Hotel dining room, and for those of you with children, our world famous children's program!!! ... more   less
